Large-capacity water tanks, motorized boreholes, and solar pumping systems are just a few of the facilities included in the solar water projects, all of which are essential for guaranteeing long-term access to clean water.

Achani emphasized the administration’s dedication to powering these water projects with renewable energy, which will meet the energy demands of marginalized areas and advance environmental sustainability.

Achani emphasized the enduring effects on agricultural output in addition to the short-term advantages of better access to water and sanitation. The county hopes to increase food security and boost food output by funding irrigation and making investments in water infrastructure.
